Big city blogger
: The Philadelphia Inquirer has assigned reporter Daniel Rubin to the blog beat but he’s going to do far more than write about blogs: He has started a new blog at the paper as a gathering place for local blogs and blog news; he will bring the voice of bloggers into the paper every way he can imagine; he will try to turn the newspaper into a conversation; and he will cover news via blog (he’s making the Personal Democracy Forum Monday his maiden voyage).
Dan’s a good guy. I’ve spent long conversations with him on various media and blog stories. He is a topnotch reporter and in the process of covering these worlds he was bitten by the blog bug, bad. I expect great things from him. In his intro post, Dan says:
For those fretting about the death of serious journalism, know that we at the Brontosaurus on Broad Street care, and are working hard for those who share our values.
